Wine Spectator
Like a Michelangelo: everything is in perfect proportion. The wine of the vintage and the best from this estate since the legendary 1961. Just as it should be. A perfect wine; full-bodied, with tons of ripe fruit flavors and round tannins. Truly impressive - like one of the old greats of Bordeaux.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Unquestionably the 1990 is the finest, most archetypical Latour since the 1982 and 1970 along with Margaux and Petrus, Latour is a strong favorite for the wine of the vintage! A triumph! It is an exceptionally powerful wine, with massive intensity, plenty of glycerin, as well as extraordinary extract and mouth-searing tannins that explode on the palate.
 

Additional Information

Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
